Jin Soon Nail Polish in Auspicious & Rescue Beauty Lounge in Be Humble (Been Feeling Grey)

It's refreshing to know that my proclivities are consistent in all cosmetics!  I suspect a lot of people are this way as well, which is to constantly be drawn to the same colors over and over again.  In this case, I purchased two nail polishes recently.

Rescue Beauty Lounge recently released its Emoting Me collection, inspired by...feelings?  Nothing more than feelings?  I made a couple of picks from the pre-sale event (which opens up to the general public later this month) and among them is Be Humble.  It's a pale, lavender toned grey with the trademark Rescue Beauty Lounge secret shimmer.  There is a mix of warm shimmer and purply blue shimmer in the color, which kind of shows in the top picture.
Formula is wonderful, with a lovely consistency that is full coverage in two coats.  Here I've topped with Butter London's top coat.  This cool color seems to bring about a slight lobster claw effect on my warm skin, but not completely unflattering, no?
Second recent purchase was Jin Soon's Auspicious.  Another grey with a lavender tinge.  This is a warm grey that is a cream with a tiny bit of jelly translucency.  It took three coats to achieve near full coverage.  No top coat in this pictures.  The pretty shine is all it's own.  I was also very impressed with the wear of this color, which lasted with out base or top coat with just a tiny bit of tip wear for about 5 days.

My sister remarked, upon seeing Auspicious: I like that color!  It looks kind of like zombie nails, but pretty at the same time!

What nail polish mood are you in?  I'm feeling like a zombie.

  1. I've adored Jin Soon polishes since I saw them on AllLacqueredUp, and this colour is no exception! I love greige/lavender polishes, but I find it really hard to find one that suits me.

    1. I'm very impressed with the formula! I think these greiges are kind of a crap shoot: a wrong one will really end up looking terrible.

  3. Mmmm... Auspicious may be the colour to wear under Illamasqua Raindrops (whenever I get that) because I am not layering eleventy one billion coats for opacity! :9

  4. I have Auspicious and I love it, it is a three coat but it applies very easily. Right now I am wearing another Jin Soon nail polish, the red one and I bought the bright blue from the new collection, I am quite obsessed : ) The colors are beautiful, they don't need a top coat to last forever and shine...

  5. Lovely! I've a soft spot for foggy greys myself, though lately I've been wearing a lot of blue, sulfuric stench notwithstanding.

  6. I am a sucker for greys and greyed-out polishes. I may even forgive the dratted RBL secret shimmer (shimmer doesn't WANT to be secret, it wants to SHINE dammit) for the sake of that PERFECT cloudy colour :O

  7. I love both of these SO MUCH. greys, and purpley greys, are the BEST POLISHES EVAR. I might even need to make an exception to my no-polishes-over $15-ever rule and get the rescue one, i love it so much.
